New Documentary Highlights Voices Of Newtown Families, Community Members

Mar 23, 2017

In their new documentary, Kim Snyder and Maria Cuomo Cole provide an eye-opening narrative of life after Sandy Hook -- the deadly mass shooting that thrust Connecticut and gun reform into the national spotlight. This hour, we sit down with the filmmakers and learn about the multi-year journey that brought "Newtown" to the screen. 

Plus: gun control in America. We find out what lies ahead under the new administration in Washington.
